Maria Raymonsdotter has simplified her bold playful charcters to some serious success for an article about artificial intelligence and robotics for The Fincancial Times, "Can a robot do your job?” We don't want to find out how much of our job can technically be automated...we like it just the way it is.

The very personal story of conflicted masculinity and self-love in Moonlight is a great reminder that cinema can be a profound human experience, Sam Gilbey's cinematic portrait sensitively depicts the lead character and it's already been circulating the realms of the internet and had kudos from the official Moonlight pages. Commissioned by British Airways for 'Highlife Magazine'. Bravo Sam!

You'll spot Chris Brown's installation and new visitor experience for the house at The National Trust site, The Vyne in Hampshire. His beautifully crafted work is perfectly matched with the Tudo history of the building and will be installed whilst they undergo some extensive conservation work. The Vyne has an original Tudor chapel as part of the house which Chris has brought to life with his linocuts Henry V111 and Anne Boelyn on horsebaack and processions of activity continued throughtout the building.
We're going to make it a CIA day out this spring for sure and grabbing all the merch!

"What President Trump doesn't seem to have considered is that diversity doesn't just sound nice, it has tangible value. Social scientists find that homogeneous groups like his cabinet can be less creative and insightful than diverse ones."
Here's to diversity and progress! Thanks Lynnie.
